Introduction to Rural and Tribal Counselor Ethics

Rural and tribal communities and schools in Montana face unique ethical dilemmas. Mental health professionals who work in these communities need to know how to recognize and take action when situations arise, and how to handle them in an ethical manner. This course will go over possible ethical situations that are unique to rural and ethical communities, and how to maintain good ethical standards in order to protect the well being of their students, their community, and themselves.

This course is for all educators, with a focus on counselors.

Navigating the Other Side of Teaching

This course emphasizes environmental, educational, and social demands that influence daily decisions educators make involving ethics, relationships, and cybertraps. Many of these decisions conflict with personal, organizational, technological, and social factors. Poor decisions — no matter how well-intentioned — may result in adverse consequences.

This course is for professional development only and will not be used for any other purpose. It is intended to build an educator’s knowledge and confidence in dealing with education-based ethical decisions.
